thinking about it, it wouldnt work too well.in muds you can go left right up down etc into a different room but in el you have more freedom to walk about so wouldnt you have to spam #left or somthing to get anywhere?
I suppose you oculd divide the maps into square chunks and when they type #left it walks you into the center of the next one. Then whenever someone goes out / into the square you could do a little message telling the player. Then for attacking monsters it would be a bit clumsy because you would do somthing like #attack monster and it would of course chase after it and kill it, but then your not in the center any more, i guess it would have to walk you back to the center again before it let you do anything. Then what about harvesting..... quite alot of things would be pretty hard to do!
